New Hampshire Republican Reaches 'Young Gun' Status with Clear Path to Victory
Washington- The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) announced today that Frank Guinta (NH-01) has reached 'Young Gun' status, the premiere level of its three-tiered Young Guns program. By advancing to the program's top tier, Guinta has proven his ability to build a winning campaign and achieve substantial fundraising goals.
“Frank Guinta has proven that he’s ready to take on Washington insider Carol Shea-Porter, an out-of-touch Democrat who has blindly supported her party’s failed agenda of job-killing policies and reckless spending,” said NRCC Chairman Pete Sessions (R-TX). “Frank’s campaign is a symbol of the growing momentum behind Republican candidates in New Hampshire and across the country. As Democrats and their party bosses continue to force their big-government, big-spending policies onto the backs of hard-working families, Republicans like Frank Guinta will continue to present a clear alternative to a Democrat majority that unapologetically spends too much, borrows too much and taxes too much.”
Frank Guinta has served Manchester for the better part of a decade – first as a member of the state legislature and then as mayor – and is well qualified to tap into the First District’s political base. Guinta received his bachelors degree from Assumption College in Worcester, Massachusetts, and his masters degree in Intellectual Property from Franklin Pierce Law Center in Concord.
Originally founded in the 2007-2008 election cycle by Reps. Eric Cantor (R-VA), Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), and Paul Ryan (R-WI) as a member-driven organization, the Young Guns program has become an official NRCC effort dedicated to electing open-seat and challenger candidates nationwide. Reps. Cantor, McCarthy and Ryan remain actively involved in Young Guns, working together to recruit and prime conservative leaders for victory.
Now that Frank Guinta has completed the Young Guns’ benchmarks to place him on the road to victory, he is ready to take on Washington insider Carol Shea-Porter in November.
